Steven Jackson carries St. Louis Rams' offense, delights fantasy football owners (finally)

Christian Petersen

The St. Louis Rams' star running back puts yet another big game together.

Steven Jackson's season is officially and finally back on track, inasmuch as he's over 1000 yards again on ESPN's projected-stats-o-meter. The St. Louis Rams' all-time leading rusher is still stuck on two touchdowns on the year, but he carried the ball 24 times for 139 yards in their Week 12 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Since the NFL Trade Deadline, in which he was the prime disappointment, he's got 66 carries for 321 yards, a 4.8 average, and in spite of his awful start he's all the way up to 4.2 yards per carry for the season. There's a cleansing finality to this... if you're a fantasy football owner.

If you're a Rams fan, then, you still have to wonder what this means. The Rams are still probably not signing him to a new contract after the season, right? So is Daryl Richardson going to be effective enough to approximate this valuable Jackson in 2013, now that he's an important part of the offense again?

I have no idea. For now, all that's left to do is to be happy about watching one of the best players in Rams history come back to life before our eyes, even if this is the end of his career under the Edward Jones Dome.
